9781781320686: Devils with Wings

German Fallschirmjager paratrooper Paul Brand and his junior sergeant Max Grun are sent to a clandestine camp in the foothills of the Harz Mountains to undergo intensive training for their mission - the subjugation of the impregnable Eben Emael Fortress. The top-secret mission involves two classified weapons: a glider used for the first time to deposit troops directly onto target, and a new Hollow Charge Weapon, capable of blasting through steel or concrete. Standing between them is over 1,000 Belgian troops. Will they succeed in their mission and penetrate the strongest fortress in the world? Or will the Belgian troops and their secure bastion be too strong? Join Paul and Max in the first of their wartime missions and follow them in the Devils with Wings series. This exciting fictionalised retelling of the assault on Eben Emael is written by an author with extensive army intelligence experience.

About the Author:

A qualified parachutist, Harvey Black served with British Army Intelligence for over ten years. His experience ranges from covert surveillance in Northern Ireland to operating in Communist East Berlin during the cold war, where he feared for his life after being dragged from his car by KGB soldiers. Since then he has lived a more sedate life in the private sector as a Director for an International Company, but now enjoys the pleasures of writing. Harvey is married with four children.

Review:

"I loved it, I read this great book from cover to cover and whole-heartedly recommend this book. A great debut book, a talented author." - D.G. Torrens "Harvey Black is on to a winner here. A well researched first book with a gradual build up of confidence in the prose which bodes well for the future." - Paul C. "The story is well paced and very well researched. The authors own military background comes though in his writing." - Nick Britten "An excellent first book, full of historical facts and clearly written by someone who has a passion and deep knowledge for his subject. An author to watch out for in my opinion." - Melanie Tollis "The amazing writing ability of Harvey would be missed, the atmosphere, the daring the drama, all are brought out on a tale well woven and well paced and so well written." - Parmenion Books
